New records species of Euphorinae (Hymenoptera, Braconidae) for fauna of Turkey



In order to determine the fauna of Turkey, adult specimens of Euphorinae (Hymenoptera, Braconidae) are collected from different habitats of Turkey using sweeping nets general between 2007 and 2019. The collected materials are prepared and labeled. In addition, relevant literature and comparison materials available in our collection are used for taxonomical examination of the obtained material. The altitudes and coordinates of localities and collection dates are presented. A total of 16 species in 7 genera are determined. All species are firstly recorded in the fauna of Turkey.
